Audi A3 Timing Belt Replacement for 2.0T FSI Models

Audi A3 Engine Bay 2.0T FSI

The 2.0 Turbo FSI engine was used in 2006-2008 Audi A3 (US). The FSI engine is driven by a timing belt system which links the cylinder head, camshafts, and crankshaft to run in sync. This Audi A3 timing belt system consists of a wear resistant, high strength, corded/molded rubber timing belt (a.k.a. Audi A3 toothed belt). There's also an assortment of tensioners and idler rollers to guide and tension the Audi A3 timing belt.

It's very important to service your 2.0T Audi A3 timing belt. The timing belt, tensioner, and idler components eventually reach the end of their recommended service life. The A3 2.0T FSI is an interference engine (a.k.a. non-clearance engine). If the Audi A3 timing belt fails, the timing belt system that links the cylinder head, camshafts, and crankshaft no longer run in sync. Close tolerance engine designs allow for the cylinder head valves to hit the top side of the pistons. Audi A3 timing belt failure on these engines usually results in catastrophic engine damage (i.e. bent valves and in some cases cracked pistons).
